remember the Tartans

 To me this pic has a bit of an "old" feel to it, cept for the smile.  In those old black and whites they didn't smile.
(below) This is my "quirky" picture. It makes me chuckle. Kinda strange eh? ;)

my "Vogue" shot.
faux camel leather boots: Steve Madden
black leggings: I've had for a long time
Vintage Plaid tartan kilt: tag reads "Made in Great Britain  from Pure New Wool for the Edinburgh Woollen Mill"
zip cardigan: Gabriel brothers
black scarf: Walmart
vintage long silver toned necklace: thrifted
giant ring: from my sister
ethnic earrings: gift from an African man selling at a festival
long sleeve blue shirt: Target 

A girl at Bible School passed this plaid skirt on to me.  This is my tartan kilt. I don't know much about Tartans. It's a cool piece. It actually has leather buckles.  I hardly ever wear it. I may take this pics and post it onto my Etsy shop to sell it. 

I took these pics a couple of weeks back. Since I took them my sister graduated bible school. It snowed and the snow stayed. I got a job!  

I won't be posting "Fashion Blogs" as often because of the job I started and because I'm more busy now.  My job is not as conducive to outfits like this. I wear my L.L. Bean Mary Jane clogs almost daily. The are Mary Jane's instead of a closed clog.  I do get to wear "normal" clothes.  I am using my CNA licensing but get to wear jeans instead of scrubs.  I have wondered about wearing scrubs, that way people know I'm associated with the nursing profession.  

On another note, I got all of my Christmas Shopping done.  I do need to make a present though. I will be making Peacock Feather Earrings for my sister.  I'm writing it "aloud" knowing she doesn't read my blog.

Merry Christmas! I've got things to do! Like wrap presents and eat pecan pie.

I love your red tartan plaid! I just adore plaid in general, but I like how you've styled this with boots and the layers up top!
Sorry to here we won't be seeing as many of your outfits, but I understand completely!
Happy new Year!
